I looked it up to be sure, but the NeXT Network and System Administration
book says for e.g. Chapter 7 Creating Network-Wide User Accounts:
<snip>
Modify the Home Directory field fo the new account
<snap>
for example, would be /Net/server/Users/meggers
<snop>

Somewhere I must have a document that describes the NeXT tree in more
detail, but I can't find it. (Does that mean I need to clean up the mess
around me?)
The /Network path is used for mounting network shares on a per host path.
But that doesn't mean we have to stick to that.
